    Yeah, contract is up mid september so I either get one early september, before I go back to uni or wait for an ICS phone which may not have a brilliant deal that you can get with the SGSII http://www.buymobilephones.net/mobil...30,All,tt1,ct1


    I suppose so then, yeah it is quite a bit bigger than my hero but then yeah it's not massive
    Well, yeah, and by then there'll be even better deals too. Tough call that one dude!

    I know. I would also like a phone with NFC cos it may not be big now but it will be in a year or so when all new phones have them and being lumped with out of date hardware in my hero I don't want to be in the same boat again

    Well, since my previous post regarding the problem (made under my old username), the amount of dust underneath the screen of my third handset has increased exponentially despite the fact it has been sat on my desk in a clean, relatively dust-free environment the entire time.

    When I contacted the retailer regarding the dust after receiving this replacement I was given the choice of procuring yet another replacement or exchanging the Sensation for another model.

    I must confess, the only reasons I haven't exchanged the Sensation for a Galaxy S2 is due to having already spent £45 on Sensation accessories before I received my first handset and the fact I'm just not as 'drawn' to the S2 as I am to the Sensation.

    I'm really not sure what to do. I'm beginning to grow weary of paying for a £25.53 per month contract that I've been almost unable to use due to having to wait for replacement handsets, all of which have been plagued by the same problems to varying extents.

    What would HTC's course of action likely be if I was to send my existing handset to them?
    I'm not sure what to say. Just get the Galaxy S II, and try and sell those accessories..

    If this paragraph from the article is accurate:
    The two patents relate to how data is processed. The first patent is described as a “system and method for performing an action on a structure in computer-generated data,” which Apple says applies, for example, to tapping a phone number and being prompted options to call or look it up on the web. The second is described as a “real-time signal processing system for serially transmitted data,” which Apple says relates to data processed in real-time applications.
    then surely every single phone (and perhaps every single computer) ever made violates these patents? Unless Apple got these back in the 1970s or something I don't see how they can possibly be upheld.

    I think the cheapest you are going to find something is on something like http://www.buymobilephones.net/ Contracts only seem to start at around 15 quid a month and you'll need to buy the phone on top of that

    Thanks - the linked to blog post in that article explains it a bit better, but they still sound far too general to be patentable.
